    Shontay White

    Can anybody help me with the highlighted sentence in the following text?

    “This other braider I went to the last time,” the customer said. “She was African, too,
    and she wanted to burn my damned hair! She brought out this lighter and I’m going,
    Shontay White, don’t let that woman bring that thing close to your hair.
    So I ask her,
    What’s that for? She says, I want to clean your braids, and I go, What? Then she tries to
    show me, she tries to run the lighter over one braid and I went all crazy on her.”

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Shontay White

    Do you know what a lighter is? Do you know why someone might object to having one brought near their hair? Do you know that "Shontay White" is a person's name?
